Zachry Corporation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children or spouses who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Zachry Corporation Academic Scholarship Program must be:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent or spouse at Zachry Corporation, and continuation of the program by Zachry Corporation.
The Zachry Corporation employee must be actively employed at the time scholarship checks are issued in August.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Zachry Corporation. Payment is made in early August.
